Chelsea chief Maurizio Sarri predicted that the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi in Chelsea looks pale.
The boy won last night's first goal on his first senior start for Chelsea in his victory over PAOK in Euroliga, but his chances of playing time in the Premier League look slim.
Hudson-Odoi started defeating Manchester City in defeat in August but did not make a team of 18 players for any Chelsea Premier League game.
It is believed that Aston Villa is delighted with the Loan Agreement in January, but Sun claim that Barcelona, Juventus, Arsenal and Bayern Munchen are interested in a permanent job for players who have 18 months in their contract on Stamford Bridge.
Despite an impressive performance against PAOK, Sarri estimates that Hudson-Odoi is not ready for the Premier League.
He says the teenager had benefited from early dismissal of Yevhen Khacherida, for professional offenses at Olivier Giroud, allowing Chelsea to provide more space.
Sarri said, "I want to see him in the match where we need a defensive phase."
Sarri also publicly talked about his struggle to find time for a talented 18-year-old ahead of the conflict with the Europa League, Sarri said. "It has to be much better, especially in the defensive phase.
"He has to work and is very good at one, but he has to move without a ball.
"The potential is a very good player, but he has to work, but this is normal, he is 18. I want to find a place for him, not easy because we have 28 players.
"It's not easy to put him in the starting XI because he might have been in the Premier League match [Victor] Moses or Pedro, so it's hard to put such a kind of player in the starting XI for Thursday. "
